If you are like me your house tends to look like the Griswold’s at Christmas.
The exterior of our house has 1000’s of feet of lights, characters, 100’s of feet of garland and wreaths galore. The inside looks no different more lights, more garland, tons of ornaments, and 2 trees. The day after Christmas my husband and I look at each other and know between today and New Years Eve everything gets put away for next year.
Over the years I have learned my lesson about making sure everything is put back in an organized fashion. Not only will this make next year easier on me but it helps keep things looking nice year after year. I have some strings of lights for the out side of our house for over 4 years and they still look good.
A few years back I came across the IHeart Organizing blog. Below are some of her great ideas for how to store your holiday decorations.
I hope that some of the great ideas from Iheart Organizing have inspired you. The only other thing that I have added to my list is I keep one little box out for about a week or two after I think I am done. I always tend to find extra things laying around the house or I end up going to the store and picking up some great clearance items for next year. Hope you had a great holiday season! Now go have fun packing it all up for next year!
